B.C. Lions QB Jonathon Jennings leaves game with shoulder injury, says it’s “fine”

B.C. Lions quarterback Jonathon Jennings left Saturday’s game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats with a shoulder injury.

Jennings was hurt on the Lion’s first offensive series when he was driven into the turf by Hamilton defensive tackle Davon Coleman. Jennings was also intercepted on the play.

TSN sideline reporter Matthew Scianitti reported that Jennings suffered a “bruised” shoulder and the 24-year-old did not return to the game.

Jennings was replaced by veteran back up Travis Lulay, who promptly led the Lions on a touchdown drive and carved up the Ticats secondary while leading B.C. to a victory, setting a CFL record in the process.

After the game, Jennings told reporters that his shoulder should be “fine.”

    Hopefully it’s nothing serious. WE can’t afford to lose our QBs

      Agreed. I hope it’s a cautionary thing. The young QB’s of the league are the marquee players.

      I don’t wish injury on any player regardless of what team they play for. I want to watch the best compete, not the back ups.

        I hear you but, trust me, you are not really getting a ‘back-up’ in Travis.

  2. Jennings looks fine to me-precaution only? Resting him for next game?

    Hopefully it stays as just a bruised shoulder. But golly, did Lulay ever look good tonight. Not sure the Lions can go wrong either way.

  4. Lulay is a great insurance policy for the Lions.
